That did not take long as the speculation is now over and we can expect to see Freddy Kruger join the ranks of Dead By Daylight. Also to join them on October 26th here. Just in time for Behaviour and Starbreeze to capitalize on the Halloween season here. It makes perfect sense and all and we did have a good tease before, but now we know Dead By Daylight will be taking us to Elm Street in some way and this is the most we have. Now we get to keep an eye out for that update and get ready to hunt more people down, or escape, with Freddy.
As me mentioned before, this is not the first time Dead By Daylight has received a horror icon update and as you can see in the trailer below it looks like the team is using the more modern look for Freddy here. This could just mean that we are only getting the slasher here and not one of the film's iconic characters who are trying to escape him. The Michael Myers update included Laurie Strode in the mix as well and if this was the Robert Englund version of the character it would be likely to see one of the "Dream Warriors" added in for the fun, but as the new film did not set up a "hero" style of character I am going to err on the side of just Freddy. We will know here tomorrow though.
Have a look at the latest for Freddy and Dead By Daylight just below and then get ready for all the killing and running fun the game allows for.
Dead By Daylight — A Nightmare On Elm Street
Freddy is coming to Dead By Daylight — as part of the A Nightmare on Elm Street Chapter. He will instill fear in you, and it doesn’t matter if you’re awake or asleep. He and his claw clad hand will find you — so keep running.
How do you feel about this version of Freddy joining in the mix for Dead By Daylight? Do you think we could see some of the other characters from the franchise show up to fight back or will it just be Freddy? How do you think he will act gameplay wise given all of the insanity that he could cause in the films? Let us all know what you are thinking and dreaming about down in the comments. For more on Dead By Daylight and its future updates, keep checking in on the site here to know it all. I have a feeling this will not be the last we hear of it.
